Focus on Women's Mental Health

Refining the Questions in Women’s Mental Health

Marlene P. Freeman, MD

Published: January 15, 2007

Article Abstract

Because this piece does not have an abstract, we have provided for your benefit the first 3 sentences of the full text.

As we begin a new year, 2 articles in our "Focus on Women’s Mental Health" section bring us new data in the areas of postpartum obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) (Uguz et al.) and self-injurious behavior in women (Favaro et al.). These areas are obviously important to women’s health but, at first glance, are not closely related to each other. Both remind us, however, that even in 2007—with all the advances in psychiatry over the past decades—we are still refining the questions that we ask rather than celebrating our ability to cure.
